Nice job on the box plates, keex. I'm sure there's some more plates in that camp waiting for you!!

Cougar, that is a gorgeous breast plate! And the initials on the back are too cool.

I think the best plate-carving I have seen was a local who found one at a home site that was used as a Confederate field hospital. It was a Union breast plate that had obviously been captured by a Confederate. You could tell, because the soldier had carved a crudely drawn Confederate flag on the back!

That's what I'm talking about. Great plates everyone. I'm about due to find another one soon, lol. I'm hoping I can pull out a Maryland, Louisiana, or CS plate where I'm currently hunting. I think I'll faint if I find any of those.

Here you go Mainer...from the camp of the 9Th Maine Volunteer Infantry who participated in the Battle of Battery Wagner, portrayed in the Academy Award winning movie "GLORY."
I dug this on December 24, 1991. That was a hell of a day!

Default Fort Moultrie Dug South Carolina Officer's Sword Belt Buckle

I dug this SC Officers buckle on the parade ground of Fort Moultrie National Monument back in 1976.
I was asked by Park personnel to detect the parade ground of the fort before it was covered by crushed oyster shells
I dug a TON of artifacts, some of which are still on display there even to this day.
It was truly an honor to dig there!

Default Here's a Few of Mine

Here's a variety a plates that include a couple of Revolutionary War Figure-8 Cross Plates/Buckles, a US Carbine Sling Buckle, a CS Frame Buckle, a US Sword Belt Plate, several US Breast Plates, several US Oval Buckles, a couple US Box Plates, a Virginia Style Plain Oval Breast Plate and a Rev War Cross Plate.

I've been so busy at work I have not been able to hunt much this year. It kind of makes me sad but looking at everyone's finds makes me happy.

I need to dig.....help!
